If you like guitars, Rock, and Jazz you’re gonna love this! Today’s runner is Sco-Mule. Veteran southern rockers – Gov’t Mule team up with jazz guitar great – John Scofield for a live performance reminiscent of a classic Jeff Beck show.
There is something for everyone in this collaboration. Warren Haynes brings the rocking blues while Scofield swings and bops and together they cook great interpretations of Wayne Shorter’s Tom Thumb, James Brown as well as originals by both these two guitar masters. Add in some funky keyboard work by Dan Matrazzo, and the late Allen Woody’s concrete bass and you have a recipe for a gritty, soulful performance. Kind Of Bird!
Reserve this one for one of those long runs. It clocks in at 2-1/2 hours of hard bopping, foot pounding swagger and strut!
Enjoy it, and then buy it!
